Rockets to play in Christie Clinic Shootout at SJO

The Unity High School boys’ basketball team will kick off the 2018 portion of their schedule by competing in the Christie Clinic Shootout at St. Joseph-Ogden High School, which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 6, at the St. Joseph-Ogden Gym.
The event will feature six varsity games and six junior varsity contests, highlighting a dozen schools stretching from Watseka to Belleville and from Danville to Galesburg, including some of the most iconic basketball programs in Illinois high school history.
The shootout may as well be called the Interstate 74 Classic, as seven of the 12 schools entered are located along the I-74 corridor, including Galesburg from western Illinois, and ending with Danville, not far from the Illinois/Indiana state line.
